Dedicated Representation For Injured Pedestrians
With beautiful weather year round, many Florida residents choose to walk or ride bicycles for leisure, exercise, or as a mode of travel. Going for a Sunday stroll or family bike ride should be relaxing and enjoyable. No one should have to worry about life-threatening injuries. In today’s fast-paced society, many people are in a rush to get wherever they are going. They may be multi-tasking while they drive — talking on a cell phone, having an in-depth conversation with a passenger, fixing their hair or make-up. A moment’s distraction from the road can lead to a serious accident involving a pedestrian or bicycle.

Holding Careless Drivers Accountable
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents most frequently occur when car, truck, or bus drivers fail to see a person walking, running or riding a bike. As long as the walker, jogger, or bicyclist is following basic traffic rules, it may be possible to hold the negligent driver financially accountable for his or her carelessness.
Pedestrian And Bicycle Accident Injuries Are Devastating
Injuries resulting from a pedestrian accident or bike crash are quite often severe. Victims may be left with lasting disabilities including brain injuries, spinal cord damage, or amputation of limbs. These catastrophic injuries are life changing. Victims have to deal with on-going medical care, rehabilitation expenses and more. A successful personal injury claim cannot change what has taken place, but the compensation it brings can help to ease some worries and struggles.
Our firm also represents families whose loved one has not survived a pedestrian or bicycle accident. In bringing about a wrongful death claim, we may be able to recover money for loss of services, companionship and potential.
